Members of the Westminster Christian Academy girls swim team recently volunteered their time at Sunshine Ministries in downtown St. Louis. On MLK Day and a day off from school, twenty-four girls and two team coaches devoted their Monday morning and afternoon to assisting the directors of Sunshine Ministries in relocating to a newly-constructed building two blocks away.
Sunshine Ministries is a local community shop that provides affordable clothing, household goods, children’s toys, furniture, and other items for low-income families.
The girls swim team enjoyed a time of service and community with the ministry staff, boxing, unboxing, cleaning, and organizing for the relocation and re-opening of the new store. “I believe God’s blessing flowed both ways,” said Kent Kehr, head coach of the team. “We saw God’s work through Sunshine Ministries, and they were encouraged by the volunteer efforts of these teenagers!”
